Why I’m Grateful Trump is president

Why I’m Grateful Trump is president

 

 

Many people would think that this is a baffling statement but I am. Trump has made bigots comfortable to be their true selves for that I'm grateful. I rather stare the devil in the face. I’d rather know who my oppressor is so I can know how to move forward towards progress. In the words of James Baldwin “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”  Some people had the audacity to think that racism was a thing of...


Insecure

Insecure

Issa Rae is the millennial whisperer, she’s able to articulate the struggles that we go through beautifully. If you haven't watched “Insecure” then you’re missing out. Minorities finally can see themselves projected in a positive light. Too many times we see negative portrayals of our races. This show doesn’t make a caricature of Blacks, Latinos or Asians.

Insecure is in its fourth season, which has set twitter a blaze for a myriad of reasons. It’s tackling pivotal moments that you go through in life. So, people are really connecting with season and I can fully understand why.

Plus Size Baddies

Plus Size Baddies

Lizzo has an electrifying year, to say the least. It’s always been stated that you’re not popping unless you have haters. The hate that has been thrown against this woman is unfathomable. I don’t want to pull the race card but it’s clear on why she receives the disrespect. Adele was a plus-sized diva and she was never disrespected like this.  

It’s pretty clear why Lizzo receives the hate that she does, she embodies everything that scares weak-minded people. She’s boisterous, confident, PHAT these characteristics aren’t commonly conveyed with plus size women. The narrative that is pushed...


Failure To Submit

Failure To Submit

Recently there was an interview of Fantasia circulating on the web where she said women aren’t in relationships because they don’t know how to submit. This pissed off a lot of women who saw it and won a lot of praise from men.

To be quite frank I agreed with her to certain extent, what people failed to take in account is some people haven’t seen the proper dynamic between their parents. Some people only know toxic relationships. Or they come from single parent households where their parent’s door was treated like an airport terminal. I’m just saying... Don’t shoot...
